SocEnv continue free, cross-disciplinary, expert webinars

The latest series delivered by the Society for the Environment (SocEnv) as the enticing umbrella topic of "A Sustainable Built Environment". The three, one-hour webinars that make up this new series will provide cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer opportunities for environmental professionals and beyond.

Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) registrants with roles in professional bodies, universities, major infrastructure projects and independent consultancies will deliver expert talks on sub-topics including; professionalism in arboriculture, the role of research, materials for High Speed 2 (HS2), enabling innovation and SuDS.

While the CEnv speakers and those linked with their work are specialists in fields under the same umbrella of the build environment, they will provide the perspectives from different sectors, which makes for an interesting debate. The free webinars are available for all to attend, last for a maximum of one hour and use a simple platform for you to watch and engage with the speakers - ideal for some lunchtime learning for those in the UK or similar time zones.
